Are You LinkedIn?

Monday, February 28, 2011

LinkedIn is one social networking site that we never hear about. The purpose of LinkedIn is to help business-oriented people connect.

There are many benefits to LinkedIn including groups that people can create and join. For example, if a company has an important meeting coming up an employee/employer can make a group to help promote it and remind other employees about the meeting.

One thing that many people use LinkedIn for is the many jobs that are listed on the site. People are able to search companies to find potential jobs.

LinkedIn is also a great way for a person to build connections with future employers, co-workers, and other business people.

One major benefit of LinkedIn is that it is free. There is no cost to join LinkedIn. Building connections with other business people can be a huge advantage in today's fast paced world.

Overall, LinkedIn promotes the user. The user decides what to put on the LinkedIn profile.
It's basically like an online resume. Users can post past jobs, recommendations, education and many other things.

The question is why aren't you signing up for a LinkedIn account right now?

I really like the idea of this network. The only thing is, if anyone can become a member of this social network then how is it only business oriented?

I have never heard of LinkedIn, but it sounds very useful. How many people are actually using this to find future employees though? It sounds like it would be easy to lie about yourself, but I'll have to do some research on it myself. I might end up signing up for it myself.
